    It is over two weeks since my final (third) injection. My knee is better but is still not quite right. I am very careful in what I do so as not to irritate it.

    My right knee actually got worse with the 3rd injection in series. I had less range of motion, swelling, and pain more severe than ever before. My left knee cracks and pops more, but is the same. I am now faced with knee replacement option on right knee. It has gotten worse after injections.
